Taking Forest Green Rovers into League football

As any Forest Green fan will know, Rovers' 10 year stay in the Conference marks the peak of the club's history. Since being promoted twice in two years in 1997 & 1998, Forest Green have made the Conference their home striving to reach the Football League proper every year, but without ever reaching the play-offs even - a continual source of frustration for the fans.

The club enjoys a loyal fan base - attendance this season are around 1,100 on average - and a good start to the 2007/08 season sees them in with a chance of promotion... but will their challenge fade once again?

If you would like the chance to help put Forest Green Rovers on the path to glory and have a say in the future of the club, then maybe The People's Club can help.

Forest Green Rovers - The People's Club?

The People’s Club are looking to sign up 40,000 football fans who are interesting in buying and running a real football club, which will be chosen by our members. We expect to bring in excess of £1,500,000 investment per season to the chosen club.

If our members choose Forest Green Rovers to be The People's Club, then what will we do?

Firstly, we'll bring much needed investment to the club in a number of ways.

You can expect gate receipts at home games to go up as members travel to see games and boost the attendance figures. Innovative commercial activities will bring in additional revenue and the very nature of The People's Club concept will naturally mean Forest Green Rovers will receive a massive publicity boost as the local and national media all monitor the success of the club.

Secondly, you, the fans, will run the club. You'll have the ability to vote on whether to hire or fire a manager, which players start each game each week and who is on the bench. As the transfer window opens, you'll be able to choose who we sign and who we transfer list.

We're giving you the opportunity to take Forest Green Rovers forwards - and, who knows, maybe one day we'll be boarding coaches to take us to Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge and Villa Park every other Saturday.

Most importantly, what we won't do is change Forest Green Rovers for the worse. We're all football fans and we fully understand the importance of the heritage and identity of the club and the feeling of belonging that each and every Forest Green Rovers fan feels. We certainly won't be relocating the team to Milton Keynes or mucking around with the club crest.

At the moment, Forest Green Rovers is not The People's Club. It can only become so if you sign up and choose Forest Green Rovers as the club you think we should make a bid for once we have enough members and therefore enough funds to do so.

Register for free and select Forest Green Rovers as your choice for the club we should buy. Then tell all your friends about us - their votes count too! If Forest Green Rovers is one of the most popular choices, it stands a very good chance of attracting substantial investment.

We're also on the lookout for a representative in Nailsworth to encourage fans to sign up, so please contact us if you think you can get enough fans behind you and make Forest Green Rovers The People's Club.
